Pediatric Compassionate Care Conference
The Annual Pediatric Compassionate Care Conference (formerly known as the Palliative Care Conference) is designed for all health care providers who support a family whose child has been diagnosed with needs that include palliative and supportive care.

Supporting families who receive a diagnosis of a baby’s life-threatening condition is a critical role doctors, nurses and caregivers provide and many parents find great comfort in this support.

This is an opportunity to advance your knowledge and  refine your skills, as you seek to grow professionally and improve the quality  of the care you deliver.

Pediatric Fundamental Critical Care Course
PFCCS is an intense 2-day course for anyone called upon to stabilize critically ill children whether on the pediatric ward, in the ICU, or in an emergency department and EMS/critical care transport teams.

PFCCS prepares the non-Intensivist, nurse, or other critical care practitioner to deal with the acute deterioration of a critically ill child. The course also assists the non-Intensivist in handling the sudden decline of a previously stable pediatric patient.

PFCCS is an accredited course for physician hospitalists, ER physicians, surgeons, resident physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, and EMS/critical care transport teams.

Nutrition Lecture Series
Coastal Carolina Neonatology (CCN) and Coastal Children’s Services (CCS)provide a series of dinner and luncheon lectures focused on the infant nutrition. The lectures are offered throughout the year and are sponsored by Abbott Nutrition.
